A New Spider-Man: Far From Home Trailer Means More Tears


Peter Parker (Tom Holland) reflects in a quiet moment from the Spider-Man: Far From Home trailer.

**Spoilers for Marvel’s Avengers: Endgame.**

“Stark made you an Avenger. The world needs that,” is what Nick Fury says to Peter Parker in the latest trailer for Marvel and Sony’s Spider-Man: Far From Home, and it drives home the message that he’s continuing to be a hero for Tony Stark. Between that and Peter worried about not getting home to MJ, this movie might be attacking my heart in more ways than one.

From the previous trailers for Far From Home, we’ve seen how Peter Parker is coping with Tony’s death. He’s trying to understand a world without his mentor, and that means coping with the repercussions of Avengers: Endgame. From the dawning of Peter and Tony’s relationship, it seemed as if Tony was filling the role of a father figure, and Peter was the child that Tony never had (before Morgan Stark was born, anyway).

With his death in Endgame, Peter has to cope with not only the loss of his mentor by taking on the burden of being the Iron Man that the world needs—after all, Thor, Steve Rogers, and Tony Stark are all gone, and the Hulk is permanently (for the foreseeable future) injured. With each new trailer we get, we can see that it isn’t exactly the easiest for Peter to cope with. Nick Fury even has to tell him that the world needs him as an Avenger. He doesn’t have to be Tony Stark (“I wanted you to be better”), but who knows what Spider-Man: Far From Home is actually going to give us.

Probably just a lot of pain.

What I do love in the trailer, though, is the clear connection between Peter Parker and Zendaya’s MJ. Michelle, who we found out at the end of Spider-Man: Homecoming goes by MJ, told Peter in the second trailer that she knows he’s Spider-Man, a twist for the character, since most every version of Peter keeps that part of his life from MJ until later on.

But in this trailer, Peter is clearly showing his feelings for MJ in a different way, exploring what it means to like her while putting his life on the line.

I also maybe started crying at the moment Peter and MJ see each other and hug.

Spider-Man: Far From Home is certainly going to be a lot for us to handle after Avengers: Endgame, but honestly, I can’t wait.
